After nearly ten years away , the indie dream-pop band Luna announced that they are reuniting. The band that was formed by former Galaxie 500 frontman Dean Wareham back in 1991, confirmed the reunion with an announcement of a string of April 2015 dates in Spain.
Wareham said “we’ve been talking about it for a little while, it’s been 10 years since the last show. We got this offer from a promoter in Spain to do a short tour, and it sounded like fun.” What sounds like fun to me is if they would have talked to Goldenvoice and reunited on the Outdoor stage at roughly 7:15 pm at the 2 Weekend Coachella Festival next April. Instead, they plan is to do a short U.S. tour that will include, as Wareham adds, “fun places like New York, Chicago, San Francisco, and Los Angeles” post Spain. Those aren’t fun places, a fun place would be in my backyard.
The band released seven studio albums over a 15 year career, most notably, 1994′s Bewitched, and the 1995 release Penthouse. The group’s current lineup consists of Wareham and his wife Britta Phillips, along with Sean Eden and Lee Wall. I always make sure I let everyone know that the original Luna Lineup included drummer Stanley Demeski of one of my fave indie bands of all-time, The Feelies.
See you in Los Angeles next spring.
